Halloween is a week away, and many kids.. and their parents, have visions of Halloween candy dancing in their heads.
But while candy is a highlight of the holiday – it also poses problems for your health, and especially your teeth.
The problem is sugar and calories. The average trick or treater consumes about 3 cups of sugar, equal to 200 sugar packets. Kids can eat up to seven-thousand calories on Halloween, the same as eating thirteen Big Macs.
Dr. John Zweig, chief dental officer for Dental Associates is kind enough to join us now to talk about this.
